Planner: How do I add Free Text for an Activity

Sometimes you may want to suggest an activity off the beaten 'tourist track. If it's not loaded in Wetu and you are in a rush, you are able to add Free Text Activities, using any name that you would like. This is also a great function when you have activities that may be a once-off opportunity for your clients. 


This functionality is available on all Operator Packages

Getting Started

In order to add 'Free Text' activities to your itinerary, you will need to be in the Planner Step of the Itinerary Builder.

Naming your Activity 

Double click on the activity search field and start typing the name of the activity. Instead of selecting an activity from the predictive list that appears, select ‘+SAVE AS FREE TEXT’. This will enter the text into your itinerary.

Note: This activity will only be available for this particular activity. Should you need the same activity further into your itinerary you will need to type it in as free text again. Alternatively, you are able to build activities that you use frequently as components and just add those activity components into the planner as needed. 

Adding a Location

Click on the '+add place' button to add a location - this will link your free text to a point in the Wetu System.

A pop-up window will appear where you can type in the Activity Location and select the correct one from the drop-down. Once added, click 'Save'.

Once you have added the 'Free Text' activities to your itinerary you can update the remainder of the details like a normal activity, this includes specific times or whether the activities are planned or optional.
